It is alleged that at about 04:45, the complainant was awoken up by the sound of gunshots and looked through the window. She noticed her cousin, Chantelle Oliphant (32) lying next to the window. An unknown male wearing dark shoes with white Puma stripes, dark pants and a dark jacket was searching the victim.
